You’re an individual. Your home should be too. At Evolution we’re not afraid to tread new ground when it comes to design ingenuity and material selection. Talk to us about a custom build and together we’ll bring your ideas to life.
Nobody knows more about how you live, or want to live, than you. So your ideas, thoughts and scribbled plans are an integral part of the process. Our expertise is in taking your ideas and bringing them to life.
This collaborative effort continues throughout the project. We will keep you involved in every step of the journey, advising and guiding you as we bring your custom-built dream home to fruition, on time and on budget.
If you’re ready to build a custom designed home, call us. The journey begins with a face to face meeting during which we discuss your ideas and aspirations, and explain the steps involved in the process. It’s an exciting time.
We design and build homes that exude charisma. Homes that reflect the personalities of the people who live in them. Built to the highest of standards with an unwavering attention to detail.
The first step in our process is a casual chat over a coffee. This is a get to know each other meeting and can be at your place or ours. We’ll tell you a bit more about Evolution, our capabilities and past projects, and you tell us about your dream home. We discuss budget expectations and timeline. Exciting stuff. If you already have plans drawn up, we can jump straight to Step 3 and start preparing a budget.
The project team consists of yourself and your choice of designer/architect, builder and, if applicable, interior designer. We work with a select group of very talented people and suggest 1 or 2 who we think would be the best fit for your project. You get to choose the people you are most comfortable with. Once the right team is in place, we do a detailed project and design brief, delving into how you live. This helps us design a home that fits your needs perfectly - then create a mood board of visual inspiration and ideas from which you can create a wish list.
This is the refinement stage, tweaking the design until you are 100% happy, finalising the budget and putting your personal touch to the home as you finalise selections - fittings, fixture, colours etc - (with an interior designer if applicable). We’ll liaise with the local authority/council on your behalf to get all the necessary approvals and paperwork, including the building permit.
There are three main forms of contracts used by home builders: standard contracts, fixed price and cost-plus contracts. Our team can explain the differences and benefits of each and recommend which contract would best suit your project.
Throughout this phase you will have access to the building site (a lot of builders don’t allow this) as well as a dedicated building supervisor to talk you through the process, answer any questions you may have and, should any unforeseen issues arise, deal with them quickly and professionally. The team of tradespeople we assign to your project are all highly skilled so you can be sure your home will be finished to a very high standard.
It’s time to pop the cork on that champagne you’ve had chilling as we hand you the keys to your new home. Once you’ve checked that everything is as it should be, you can start moving your furniture in. We’ll make sure you have all the manuals for your appliances. If you come across any little defects after moving in, don’t worry, we’ll make sure they are rectified quickly. In fact, we provide a 6-month defect liability for your peace of mind.
The ever evolving needs of this family of five were the driving force and number one priority when it came to the design of this gorgeous, custom- built home.view project
Nestled in a stunning, tree lined street in Jolimont and originally home to one half of a 30+ year old duplex with a common wall, this site posed some unique challenges which the team at Evolution were excited to take on.view project
